One of the bands I play in requires a 5 string. After getting my 4 string Bongo last week I can't handle the thought of using my Cort 5 anymore for this particular gig. I considered selling all my basses and buying another Bongo - but there's something about my Warwick that won't let me sell it. I really think it's special. Doesn't feel like any other Warwick I've ever owned or played. HA HA, NA, NA - I got the best Warwick in the world!!! Anyhow - got the brainstorm of putting it to use once more since I never play it. Called Dana B. and they were happy get a B string just a nut pole piece in the mail for me. Anyone ever do this with their Warwick? How many of ya'll string whatever bass you've got BEAD? How necessary is a G string? Anything up to the 12th fret can easily be played on the D string, and I rarely (if ever) go past the 12 fret on the G.
